website. and two florida mothers taking on the stand your ground law in florida. >>> congress wants answers about the troubled rollout of the affordable care website, and lawmakers are trying to get them at this hour. they spent much of the morning grilling the administrator who oversaw the plagued website. she apologized for the issues that consumers have been facing. she says the agency is now working to fix the problems. our white house correspondent, mike viqueira is in washington. mike they are the seven worst words that anybody wants to hear. you have been called to testify before congress. what is happening right now about that particular website? >> well, she is the made of the cms, who is in charge of running not only that website, but the entire affordable care act that goes around it. obviously a lot of controversy. perhaps if they had stuck to this all along in plait call sense they would have been better off. no one has had much success at all applying through the website. the president has said time and time again, they are working 24/7. they hope to have that website
, and is designated a global terrorist under u.s. law. we continue to discuss security with the iraqi government, although this is only one aspect of our cooperation. political and economic tools must also be used to drain the recruiting pool of all extremist groups. we therefore welcome the prime minister's commitment to holding national parliamentary elections. the strategic agreement gives the united states a unique role in fostering democratic development. we will work with the united nations and iraqi leaders to ensure that all technical requirements to ensure freedom and elections are in place. i want to assure you that if iraq faces these challenges, it will have a committed partner in the united states. our relationship was rooted in respect and interest, as enshrined in the strategic framework agreement, are permanent and enduring roadmap. i thank you for this opportunity and ask you to help me welcome prime minister nouri al-maliki.

secret activity, it almost seems like a contradiction. how do you address laws that we don't want to talk about in public? democraticke a fully function and the government will fully comply, but how do you write about things that the government doesn't want to talk about? >> we can talk about the purpose of the program in the framework for the program. certainly, i recall very specifically in the debate on the fisa amendments in 2008, that is what we did. maybe members of congress for not paying much attention, but it was out there on the airwaves what the issues were. certainly, the telephone metadata had been disclosed by the "new york times" and then partially declassified by president bush in late 2005. there was conversation out there. congress can do that and that should happen. there could be public hearings as there are now public hearings about competing versions of the lawstial fixes for the that we have. yes, a portion of this is classified. exactly how it works is classified. why do we want to tip our playbook to the bad guys? that can be explained to the public, too. want sho
at the university of washington law school in 1965 during his freshman term. he was a brilliant young man with a warm and friendly smile. it was his intellect and love for this country that made him an outstanding leader. he served as chairman of the house agriculture committee and worked hard bringing these two issues together allowing chairman foley to have support in the house for both. he believed in and practiced ability and bipartisanship. his view was after the elections were over, democrats and republicans should work together to deal with a national legislative agenda. seeing his strong leadership qualities and the belief in getting things done for the american people, speaker tip o'neill appointed him to be the with and he was unanimously elected to be our majority leader and then our speaker in 1989. he worked closely with bob michael and they remain great friends after they left congress. later, president clinton named speaker foley to be our ambassador to japan. as a staffer to war and, i worked with him on the spokane world's in the created traumatic change for the largest c

with the affordable care act. >> the problem with obamacare isn't just the website, it's the whole law. >> democrats fiercely defend the law and site. >> everybody needs to chill out, because it is going to work. >> we are working around the clock to deliver the shopping experience that you deserve. >> according to prepared testimony released by the white house, secretary see bellous will admit to some of the problems saying: >> she is expected to blame the website contractors saying they have not met expectations. last week in another congressional hearing, the lead contractors said they only had two weeks in september to do end to end testing of the system, something they say should have taken months. the white house is still promising a quick fix. >> by the end of november, the experience on the site will be smooth for the vast majority of users. >> the obama administration points out there are other ways to sign up. >> they can use the call center, paper applications, then we have in-person assistance available in each state. >> president obama is scheduled to be in boston today. he's hoping to
the president made when he sold his health care law. promises such as if you like your health care plan you can keep it and that premiums would drop by $2,500. those promises, mr. speaker, are now on the ash heap of history. here's what i'm hearing from my district. a woman from allegeny county recently showed me the letter she got from her insurance letter. the letter begins -- this is to inform you that we'll discontinue your health care plan on december 31, 2013. mr. rothfus: a father tells me that his family's coverage will be terminated next year. another woman in the north hills tells me she gets insurance through her employer, a small business, but her share of the premiums are frippling. when a product comes with a promise that is broken, you take it back and look for a new product. the empowering patients first health and the american health care reform act are examples of new health care reform products we can look at. they are solutions that empower consumers and not washington elites and they are a good place to start. i thank the speaker and i yield back. the speaker pro tempore: f
in on the health care law's fate. until recently, many had not felt the impact obamacare would have on their everyday lives. but as premiums increase, paychecks fall and individuals face tax penalties in the coming months, people are rightfully outraged and they want their voices heard. >> we're going to talk about it right now with cal thomas. he's a syndicated columnist and fox news contributor. kristy setzer, the president of new heights communications and former spokesperson for former vermont governor howard dean. good to see both of you. >> hi. >> good to be here. >> cal, i'm going to start with you on this. i want to ask you, what do you think is the best move for republicans next? >> since they don't own this, arrest they will, there was not a single republican vote in congress for obamacare. i think they should get out of the way and let the full impact be felt by the american people. the initial preview of coming attractions is already out there. look, centralized government never works. it didn't work in the roman empire. it didn't work in the soviet union. both of which

after a judge found provisions of the abortion law unconstitutional, ruling that the measure restricted a woman's action to abortion clinics. the government will continue efforts. >> penn state university is paying $60 million to 26 young men abused by a lecturure. it comes a little more than a year after jerry sandusky was put in gaol for 45 counts of the child abuse. "consider this" is up next. you gone go to aljazeera.com for the latest news. balance. given the threat america continues to face, shouldn't these programs go forward with some oversight? >> these programs, we don't even begin to know the depth of them. we are scratching the surface right now. and i can tell you that from representing whistleblowers for years. these violate numerous national laws as well as international laws. so i don't know if it's a matter of modifying them. i think you may not have heard the level of outrage from spain that you did because you didn't hear about the head of the state employing monitored. initially, germany had a rather soft reaction to the idea its citizens were being monitored but the

them to do within the confines of the laws of the united states of america. the most important thing is to let the public know the facts so we can engage in to reform while maintaining the necessary capabilities to protect our nation. there has been a lot in the media about this situation. some right, some wrong. much has been mischaracterized, which is not helpful for those of us serious about privacy and national security. after these leaks came out, we are urged the intelligence committee to release more information to help the public understand, which they have done. today, we are holding this open hearing so we can continue to get out the facts to the american people can hear directly from the intelligence committee and outside legal experts. one key fact we need to keep in mind is that nsa's focus is on foreign threats. under fisa, nsa does not target americans in the u.s. or anywhere else without a court order. there are two pfizer authorities highlighted in the press. the business records -- fisa authorities highlighted in the press. the business records act to collect metada
to remove morsi from office in an act that morsi himself said is against the law. >> the difference between the trial of dr. morsi and the trial of mubarak is that mubarak has abundant authority. according to the law and institution morsi is the president of the rebel. this is the legal and constitutional situation right now. >> if morsi is convicted of incitement to commit murder he could be sentenced to death. al jazeera, cairo. >> meanwhile, secretary of state john kerry now working to de fuse the tensions between the the u.s. and saudi arabia. kerry is continuing his tour of the middle east. it comes after plains of holy spirit of syria, iran and the middle east peace process. >> the saudis are the senior player, if you will, within the arab world with egypt. egypt is in more of a transition, so saudi arabia's role is that much more important. the saudi's ability to influence a lot of things that we also care about, and we work together on. we're working together particularly on middle east peace process on syria, on egypt, and on iran. >> saudi arabia's foreign minister told kerry that
into custody. he's reported to be in critical condition in the hospital. law enforcement sources tell the l.a. times that authorities found a note next to the shooter in which he expressed, quote, his disappointment with the government. nbc news reporting that the shooter sent a suicidal text to his family before entering the airport where he apparently started shooting. again, though, the shooter is alive in critical condition and in custody. l.a.x. is a mess in terms of flight cancellations and delays and thousands of passengers getting stranded. this is a story we'll be following through the night as we learn more. please keep watching this space for news. >>> here's the background, when george w. bush picked harriet mier meyers, he was showing trademark loyalty. he was also particularly happy to have found a woman he trusted for that job since the seat she was going to be filling on the court would be the one vacated by the retiring justice sandra day o'connor. now the harriet miers nomination didn't work out. outside conservative groups had weighed in against the bush administration an
. >> reporter: that's just general condition. under current of law they're not allowed to tell us what shape toes people are in. there is still a lot to learn at lax, and we hope that it will unfold in the hours to come. it will be a while, and it will be hours before this airport is up and running normally. >> brian rooney for us at los angeles international airport. we're learning more first-hand accounts who were in the airport when the gunman started shooting. >> everyone just dropped to the ground and started crawling along, staying as low as possible. basically, everyone was just climbing over each other. we were pinned in where the guy was shooting, and tsa main security. >> i turned around, and there was a young man who was in an tsa agent outfit who was holding his abdomen area, and there was blood on his hands. >> the police came charging towards me, and hands up, they handcuffed me and left me on the ground. >> i was freaking out. i was really shaken up. i didn't expect--i mean, going on vacation you don't expect to deal with that kind of stuff. i was freaking out. >> they came ba
showing a blatant disregard for systems and laws designed to protect the hotel. as our filings made clear, these are not victimless crimes. americans trust medications prescribed for their parents and grandparents, for their children and for themselves. they are selected because they are in the patient's best nterest. the laws enacted by congress and the enforcement efforts of the fda provide important safeguards to ensure that the drugs are proof -- are approved for uses that are safe as well as effective. efforts by drug companies to introduce their drugs into interstate commerce for unapproved uses subvert those laws. likewise, payment of kickbacks undermines the independent medical judgment of healthcare providers. it creates financial incentives to increase the use of certain drugs, potentially putting the help of some patients at risk. every time pharmaceutical companies engage in this type of conduct, they corrupt medical decisions by healthcare providers. they jeopardize the public health and they take money out of the taxpayers pockets. this settlement demonstrates that the depar
federal law enforcement agents should have been working with the authorities of pakistan to arrest him. >> and one really has to ask the question why the government was not able to arrest or even question him. this is islamabad we're talking about. it's the capital of the country. >> population is over a million people. jirga was a real public event. >> it was at a big hotel. it was advertised widely. it was an open event. >> tariq aziz was plainly visible to hundreds and hundreds of people. he talked with reporters. everything about him that the authorities could have wanted to know about his location and about his recent activities were known to the united states. >> it would have been extremely easy for them to approach him, sit down and talk to him or, for that matter, put him in jail. but instead the cia chose to go and kill him without giving him the opportunity to give his side of whatever it is that they thought that he had done. there is no evidence there whatsoever. and they've given him no lawyers, there's no judge and there's no jury. >> our preference is always to capture
to offer his perspective. governor, great to have you. let me ask you first, what we're seeing is a law designed to cover the uninsured. it's now booting far more people off their insurance plans than it can sign up. right now, on the nonfunctioning insurance exchanges. governor, the longer this goes on, what does this do to the president who can't distance himself from a law he set in motion and the cornerstone of his leadership agenda. >> he really can't, uma. the fact is, he can say i didn't know about these problems. well he should have known. frankly, i don't believe for a moment that he didn't know. no less than nbc indicated that the president knew three years ago that everything he was saying at the podium, if you like your health insurance you can keep it. he knew that wasn't true. if he had explained that more people would lose their insurance than would keep it and that this program will put more people on medicaid than on private insurance, this thing would never have passed. i think a lot of democrats are going to be scrambling for the exits between now and election time ne
: non-corrupt government? government of laws. >> you know, yes. but much more important, i would say just effective government. because you know, we came, i'm a product of the crises of the 80's. mexico was wiped out of the face of the earth in terms of economic terms from 82 to 88. and those were very difficult years. we went totally broke. and people had basically given up on the country immigrating. so being, coming, having gone through that, which was caused by so badly mistaken government policies in terms of public spending, they spent everything. they put on huge debt. they build massive white elephants. and so they squandered a good part of our oil riches and that's what led us to that decline. >> rose: you're in the sofa business too. >> yes. we have to compete. >> rose: with carlos slim. >> he bought the government monopoly. what they call the ppt the whole thing. they had local phone, long distance phones, mobile phones, all kinds of links. everything was monopolized by the government. and this also was put to sale by salinas. and that was good. but the bad thing was the
enrolled in obamacare since the law went into effect. and now we know why. the numbers are so embarrassingly low that the obama administration is scrambling to wish her that this signature legislative achievements survive the obamacare disaster. i am lou dobbs. ♪ ♪ lou: evening, everyone. the obamacare website is a disaster. max baucus is calling for major changes in the program now in enrollment numbers for the first few days of the obamacare rollout are dramatically disappointing for the administration. the white house has been telling us for months that millions of americans have been visiting health care.gov, but the house oversight committee released internal notes from meetings that show only six people in total successfully enrolled on the first day enrolled. obamacare is a train wreck that has become a laughingstock as a result. as of today, the hite house pushed back expectations, taping them down and jay carney said that we don't expect those numbers to be very high and we never did. henry is at the white house with our report. reporter: embarrassed over the roll
the troubled rollout for the law. tech problems playing the website. republicans and some dems are calling for a one year delay of the penalties people would face if they don't get some kind of coverage. >> more testimony on capitol hill over what led to the affordable care acts botched debut. next in line for questioning, marlin tavenner will testify. >> on wednesday, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius will be questioned about the problem-plagued on line exchange. she will be the most high profile figure to testify on the rolling outout. it will be her first time on capitol hill since the october 1 launch of the website. republicans have called for her resignation, but president obama said he still has faith in her. >> penn state university is getting ready to pay out $60 million to victims of former football coach jerry sandusky, announcing settlements with 26 accusers. this comes more than a year after sandusky was accused of 45 counts of child sex abuse and sent to prison for life. penn state president rodney erickson called the settlements another step forward in th
law that was a model for the affordable care act. visiting boston, president obama said the comparison still holds. >> because you guys had a proven model that we built the affordable care act on this template. >> the president spoke in the same spot where mitt romney, his former rival signed the massachusetts law seven years ago. with many now having their existing health care plans canceled, even after he repeatedly promised they could keep them, the president now says they'll be happier with the new plan. >> if you're getting one of these letters, just shop around in the new marketplace. you're going to get a better deal. >> but for some, that deal could mean higher monthly costs than they paid under their old plan. >> will you go into the exchanges -- >> i -- >> if you can, will you? >> on capitol hill, republicans attacked the changes and person in charge of them, health and human services secretary kathleen sebelius, who became the second top official in as many days to apologize for the healthcare.gov problems. >> hold me accountable, i'm responsible. >> the website wasn't secur
